Book Review - Killer Pursuit, by Jeff Gunhus

Title: Killer Pursuit
Author: Jeff Gunhus
Publisher: Seven Guns Press
Pages: 352
Genre: Thriller

When a high-society call girl is murdered in her Georgetown home, investigators find two cameras hidden in the walls of her bedroom. One has its memory erased, presumably by the murderer. The second is connected to the Internet through an encrypted connection...and no-one knows who's on the other end.

Special Agent Allison McNeil is asked by beleaguered FBI Director Clarence Mason to run an off-the-record investigation of the murder because of the murder's similarity to a case she worked a year earlier. Allison knows the most direct path to apprehending the killer is to find the videos, but the rumors that the victim's client list may have included Mason's political enemies has her worried about the director's motives. As she starts her investigation, she quickly discovers that she's not the only one pursuing the videos. In fact, the most aggressive person racing against her might be the murderer himself.


I love books that grab you from the get go and keep you until the end.  I was pulled in from the first pages and wanted to keep going until I was done.  It was a great book for me.  If it can keep you reading, saying "Just one more page", then you are lucky! Not every author can do that and this one definitely is one to read.

I love that we get to see into Allison's mind as well as the killer's mind.  I like books that give us both sides to things, so we get a better idea of why they are doing what they are doing.  Getting from point A to point B is not always a straight line, and when you can get both sides of the story as you go it helps better understand where the curves and edges are.  I love that with this book.

Allison is one of those characters you can relate to in a book.  She is real, not one of those perfect, never does anything wrong types.  I love thrillers where you have real people in them, not the ones who know everything all the time and can get the bad guy in no time.  She is one that you want to be friends with, to help get the nasty people she has to deal with.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone and everyone!
